Vancouver, BC (February 6, 2013) -- Radial Engineering Ltd. is pleased to announce the StageBug SB-1, an ultra-compact direct box designed to fit inside the string pocket of a guitar case!

Designed primarily for acoustic guitars, the StageBug SB-1 is an ultra compact active direct box that measures less than 2" wide x 3.85" long x and only 1.3" high. (5.1 cm x 9.8 cm x 3.3 cm) and is powered using standard 48V phantom power.

It features a standard 1/4" hi-Z instrument input, a low-Z balanced output to feed the PA system, plus a tuner output that works double duty as a thru connection to feed the artist's on-stage amp. All connectors feature glass-filled nylon construction and nickel-silver contacts for long life without failure. Through-hole parts are employed throughout for optimal signal transfer. This is combined with a full ground plane to reduce noise. Performance is spectacular with a ruler flat response from 20Hz to 20kHz while being able to handle extreme dynamics without flinching. It is also equipped with a -15dB pad to handle high output active instruments and a 180°polarity reverse to help tame hot-spots on stage and eliminate resonant feedback.

Specs:

  • Active direct box for acoustic guitar
  • Ultra compact to fit in your guitar case
  • Plug & play easy to use feature set
  • 48V phantom powered, no batteries needed
